Three diverse contemporary artists come together to exhibit at the Graphic Studio Gallery.

Mary Plunkett bases her prints and books on family themes and connections and in this year of commemorations is combining relief print and letterpress to present the poetry of her grand uncle, Joseph Mary Plunkett and her great grandfather, George Noble Count Plunkett.

Caroline Bond's new bronzes depict 'War Horses', that echo the emotional position of many who find themselves caught up in the line of fire between conflict and war. They reflect upon the physical and emotional response to devastating terror. Theirs is a dis-orientation - a fear, responding aimlessly and lost. The sculptures aim to provide recognition to forgotten friends who never gave up.

Siobhan Hyde's suite of new screenprints imbue homemaking, soul searching and remembering the delight of the simple pleasures of life, through the depiction of household utensils. "A visit to see Jim Dines 'Tools' in New York 2015, influenced a broader appreciation of objects as beautiful and worthy of representation. The making of 'scissors' removed the hankering to have my Mothers things after her demise."
